MCS x Keep Wales Tidy Spring Clean
Join this beach clean to help us stop harmful litter from reaching the ocean and collect vital data that we can use to bring about positive change for our seas.
In support of Keep Wales Tidy's Spring Clean Cymru, we're going to tackle litter at Kinmel Bay! Come make a big difference and help us leave the beach clean and safe in time for Spring.
We will be completing our MCS litter survey, and as part of Spring Clean Cymru, we will be pledging a number of bags that we will collect and how many minutes we will be spending cleaning up our local beach.
If you have your own gardening gloves and litter picker, please do bring these along. If you need to borrow any equipment, don't worry; all equipment will be provided for you. Please bring water, wear sturdy shoes and suitable clothing.
We look forward to welcoming you!
Beach stretch details
To access Kinmel Bay beach, you need to be able to step over a thigh-height barrier. There is no gateway or path onto the beach, as this part of the coast is suffering from coastal retreat, so to protect the movement of sand, the barriers are in place. Anyone who has mobility issues or those with small children might be unable to access the beach without assistance.
Also worth knowing…
What to bring: We’d recommend you pack a rucksack with a few essentials like sunscreen, waterproofs, hand sanitiser, and perhaps some snacks and a drink (in a reusable bottle, of course).
What to wear: If you're picking up litter with your hands it's worth wearing a strong pair of gloves - like gardening gloves - just to make sure you're protected. Sturdy shoes are a must for protection too.
Under 16s: To comply with our insurance, volunteers under 16 will need to be accompanied by an adult who will be asked to sign a parental / guardian consent form on the day by the beach clean organiser.
